Spotify is publicly testing its own version of Stories – Android Police

It seems Spotify didn’t want to be left out when Twitter featured its Snapchat clone Fleets stories. The music streaming service has started publicly testing its own version of stories, an exclusive way for artists and businesses to connect with their audiences.

YouTube player TmarTn discovered stories while searching for Christmas music. When he opened the annual Christmas Hits playlist curated by the streaming service, he noticed a new clue on Spotify’s profile picture, informing him that he could “tap to see the story,” consisting of into celebrities sharing their favorite Christmas songs. The interface looks pretty much like any other stories user interface. A bar at the top of the screen is separated into several sections to show you the number of segments, and you can presumably tap the left or right side of your screen to go back or forward.

Spotify has been working on stories for quite some time. We got our first look at the feature thanks to app sleuth Jane Manchun Wong in August 2019 when she discovered a question-and-answer session with Norwegian singer Sigrid. It seems the stories weren’t publicly tested at the time – Jane had to dig into the Android app code to find out.

The current test appears to be a public a / b test, so you might be having fun already. Try searching for the Christmas Hits playlists pictured in the tweet above and see if you can tap the Spotify profile picture to view the story.
